5 stars Little can be said after the review of Votoms for this exactly album. I'am going to just thrown a little bit of my thoughts in here.

Oh boy, what would I give to put Arrigo Barnabé in contact with the RIO movement... him working with Henry Cow and all the crew would be something off the wall.

Anyway, I digress. Clara Crocodilo, for me, goes beyond simple music. It's art. As São Paulo is one of the biggest metropolis in the world, the bad results of this are also to be shown. The lyrics of Clara Crocodilo approaches this in a curious manner: even in the format of a newspaper article. Urban chaos is shown best exemplifies perhaps since Mário de Andrade's Macunaíma. Arrigo Barnabé do not only know this, he uses it for his own purposes.

A step way ahead of Tom Zé's Todos os Olhos, Clara Crocodilo is a essential album for understanting brazilian Avant-gard music.

GKR | 5/5 |
